Welcome

I'll put my years as a experienced Realtor to work for you in helping you see all the current homes for sale in our real estate market. As a licensed agent & Certified Residential Specialist, I'll insure your success in finding the right home.

About Me

A home. It isn't just a roof over your head; it is a sense of community, a representation of your life, your hopes and dreams. For most people it is also the largest financial decision that they will have. I do everything I can to make your real estate purchase a seamless transaction into owning your dream home. My goal is to do such a great job in helping you that you become a fan for life, cheerfully sending your friends, family and co-workers to me to get the same thoughtful service that I gave you. In my real estate career of 30 years, I've helped over 1000 families with their real estate needs. Please read the reviews posted by some of my recent buyers and sellers at http://www.zillow.com/profile/tmenges/#reviews.
I've been helping my clients buy and sell real estate as a full time Realtor since 1988 when I first began my real estate career in the Catskill Mountains of upstate NY. My wife and I had spent about 10 years looking to find when we first visited Raleigh in 1991. We knew that we were onto something and returned in July 1992. We bought a house in 3 days. Returning to NY, we put our home on the market, packed and moved into our new Raleigh home in August, just in time to catch our breath before our kids started middle and elementary school. I am well aware of the needs of relocating families and have created a . I've helped innumerable families (and singles of course) feel comfortable in their move here by giving them 'my Raleigh tour' where I'm able to show newcomers what our city has to offer and how easy and safe it is to enjoy.
What you'll get when you work with me: my honesty, my integrity and my full attention. I listen carefully to what you tell me you want in a home or community and then work my upmost to find it for you. I'll never rush or push you into an uncomfortable decision. Your needs remain uppermost in everything that I do. I work hard to provide you with clear, detailed and complete communication and tell you the negatives as well as the positives about whatever decision you may be considering.
I have some great tools for helping you find the best homes to choose from as well as a collection of other professionals (inspectors, lenders, attorneys) who will work alongside us to help keep your costs down.
I work with sellers as well. I've maintained a strong Internet presence for over 10 years because that's where today's buyers are coming from. My sellers love the unique websites I create for their homes along with the multitude of pictures, virtual tours, video tours and other consumer-friendly information I put online to give their home traction with buyers.

Qualifications

Now living in my 6th home in Raleigh in just 25 years, I fully understand the traumas of moving. Enough said.
I always work in my client's best interest and have argued forcefully with clients when I felt that they were buying the wrong home.
I empathize so strongly with my clients that I generally know what is right or wrong about the home for them before they recognize it for themselves.
